Rules for Yic Yac Yoe

These are the official rules for the yEAh Games-developed game, Yic Yac Yoe.

CONCEPT/GENERAL RULES:
Each player places down a mark (on the board with their writing utensil) on their turn. This will vary slightly depending on the version.
Contrary to the original game (Tic Tac Toe), the player loses when they place their marker on a spot that completes the (number decided for the length of a row)-long row (e.g., in a 3x3, the player loses when they place their marker to complete a 3-square-long row; the opposite of what happens in Tic Tac Toe.).

OTHER RULES:
Other rules will apply depending on variations.

VARIATIONS:
To play the game, you must choose one variation per category — any option can be combined with any option:
⠀⠀1 — Board size:
⠀⠀⠀ Variable to your choice; you can choose the numbers (x by x squares).
⠀⠀2 — Number of placements (markings) on your turn:
⠀⠀⠀ 1Default; can be played with custom markings, not just lines.
⠀⠀⠀ 2"Youbles"; is played with connecting lines.
